Happy Thursday. I intended to post yesterday, but I was out until eleven last night watching a movie with my book club. We watched Wine Country, which was hilarious and fun.
I started a pair of socks last Saturday. I love having a really easy project on the needles for social knitting. I am going to complete one more stripe then turn the heel. I want to finish these in June, as they are rainbow socks and I am telling myself they are for pride month. I wish the rainbow colors were bolder, but these will do. I’ll just be on the lookout for bold rainbow yarn the next time I go yarn shopping.
On Monday I started a wedding gift for this Saturday. My cousin is getting married. Both he and his fiance are Iowa State fans. I decided to whip up a pair of hand holding mittens for them to wear while tailgating next football season. These have been a fun, fast knit. I still have to start the yellow cuffed mitten later today and with any luck I’ll finish it tonight.
I’m definitely in summer knitting mode. The only projects that interest me are small, easily portable projects. After I finish the hand holding mittens I am not sure what I’m going to work on. I might take another look at my Everyday Shawl, or I might make a few hats to have on hand next winter. The only think I know for sure is I won’t be starting a sweater.
I’m quite certain I’ve just jinxed myself into obsessively starting a sweater next week.
